About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified children and young people's counsellor based in Bedfordshire. I have over fifteen years experience of counselling children, young people and supporting families. I have worked in a variety of different settings including schools, colleges and for the NSPCC all delivering therapeutic work. I am experienced in working with children who are looked after and in completing post adoption support. My client group range from children and young people aged from 4 years to 30 years old. The first 2-3 sessions will consist of an assessment to determine the type of intervention and approach required. This will include parents/carers where age appropriate. The assessment will include a consultation with parents/carers to plan and outline any future work. The sessions will be confidential to the child or young person, however, parents will have regular reviews with the child's or young person's consent. The sessions will be 50 minutes long but can be tailored to the child's or young person's needs. Support sessions with parents to manage challenging behaviours are also a key part of the work. Evening and weekend appointments are available. Approved by and registered with Bupa.
